Longplayer: sound art – a piece of music set to last a thousand years – which raises a lot of interesting questions. If, like me, you believe (sometimes) that art arises out of a ‘dialogue’ of sorts between artist and audience, what does it mean for a piece of art that no human being – including the artist – could possibly experience it in its entirety? This is the kind of stuff La Monte Young has also been exploring throughout his career, but Longplayer’s designer and creator has no particular minimalist or avant-garde pedigree, being Jem Finer, ex of the Pogues!
